I’m glad to announce that I’m allowed to deliver two talks at the next International Conference on Historical Linguistics to be held at University of Naples (Italy). The first talk entitled “On the development of the infinitival marker zu ‘to’ in the history of German. A corpus-based analysis” is a joint talk with Katrin Goldschmidt. The second talk “Somebody that I used to know, or: How do habitual verbal heads emerge? The case of German pflegen ‘use(d) to’” will present results of a joint work with Lisa Wietholz.
